The national currency of Ukraine is Hryvnia (UAH).

1 hryvnia = 100 kopecks

Banknote in circulation: 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200 500 hryvnas.

Coins in circulation: 1, 2, 5, 10, 25, 50 kopecks, 1 hryvna.

Officially in Ukraine you cannot pay in any currency other then hryvna. No dollars, euros, etc. are accepted in stores, hotels, restaurants or elsewhere. But quite often dollars and euros are used as equivalent for some prices and sometimes foreign currency may be accepted by apartment owners or private interpreters.

US dollars, euros and Russian roubels are the most popular and the easiest to exchange currencies in Ukraine. You can exchange currency for Hryvnas in banks and some official currency exchange offices.

Remember!

- You may be asked for some document (passport) while exchanging currency.

- Do not exchange money with strangers in the street. It is illegal and chances are that you will be cheated.

Bank cards are gaining popularity all over Ukraine. Most big and smaller shops, hotels, cafes and restaurants accept Visa, MasterCard/EuroCard and some other global networks.

These cards can be also used to withdraw money from and ATM. ATM can be found in all bank offices, big stores, hotels and just in the street. Although most ATMs in Ukraine offer hryvnas it is possible but difficult to find ATM with USD in some big cities like Kiev, Kharkov or Odessa.

Remember!

- Fee may be charged for taking hryvnas from an ATM in Ukraine. Please, check it with your bank before the trip.

Avoid bringing Travellers checks to Ukraine as they are not popular here and it may be very difficult to find a bank that would accept them.
